Really getting pretty annoyed by handbags, babypowder, shoes and other crummy articles. Be assured NO ONE wil click your silly links here. So shove it! Go play somewhere else.

Yes, most of the time. And sometimes I just get irritated when the baby carriers keep hanging on for a bit longer. Stupid rotzooi. (still irritated) cheers!

I fear that J has naught to do with this.. it seems to take an actual Anu intervention!

Report it with the Notify option and have the satisfaction of getting an acknowledgement from Anu thanking you for reporting it and the knowledge that the poster has been deleted and banned. Then, when the same poster comes back a little later with the same spam, you get to do the whole thing all over again.

Were y'all talkin' about the wedding gown post? I just deleted that one; sorry for the delay. Mea culpa.

When I'm the first one to get to it, I always get a
thank you from Anu.

She does have the great power to delete whatever she likes, right Jackie? Glad she never misuses that power. laugh But, sigh...

Strange word to look at 'misuses', looks like you should pronounce it 'my suses'.

Dear Branny,

You can be my suses any time you want. wink

And yes, I can delete and/or edit any post, I believe. I have taken my cue from Anu, however, and keep my hands off, barring spam or a specific request by the person who has posted.

I'm wondering though about the use of the notify button: do those posts actually get handled by Anu? the replies I've seen don't usually seem automated; i.e., they often have a personal slant, and I've assumed they actually come from him!

Same here. I think they really do get handled by him. Note also that sometimes a post here is repeated in the weekly AWADmail issue email.

My responses also seem to have a personal slant, at least
it seems so to me. His last comment: "Keep on swatting
them, they keep coming".

!! I have never used the Notify button--it has never occurred to me. Come to think of it, I've not used any of those except Edit and Reply. Oh well--call me tunnel-visioned.

Using the notify button came after a lengthy discussion here
as to whether it was quicker/better than the Contact Us
link at the top, and the comments made on the thread following
a spam post. Many got sick of those comments, and the notify
button was the answer, with others refraining from comments
until Anu deleted the post.

By using the Notify button, Anu is only notified once per piece of spam rather than presumably multiple times. If I click the Notify button on a piece of spam posting and nobody else has done so, then I will be able to write a short email to Anu and he will get rid of the offending piece of spam. If, on the other hand, somebody else has already notified Anu about this particular piece of spam, then the would-be notifier is told that somebody else has notified the admin about this piece of spam.

This was explained more than once.

Sorry--either I missed it completely or, more likely, my brain did not retain that info.
